Star anise - the fruit of a Far Eastern shrub (Illicium verum), star anise is shaped like an eight-pointed star and contains shiny seeds with an aniseed flavour. It's used widely in Chinese cooking and is one of the five spices in Chinese five-spice powder, but also a real depth of flavour to any tomato based sauces.Certain Thai curry pastes and soups use star anise, and authentic Thai iced tea uses this as a flavouring. Star Anise is also used very effectively in making aromatic pot pourri and treat infants for colic.
